A natural disaster is a major adverse event resulting from natural processes of the Earth; examples include floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, and other geologic processes. A natural disaster can cause loss of life or property damage, and typically leaves some economic damage in its wake, the severity of which depends on the affected population's resilience, or ability to recover and also on the infrastructure available
There are three reasons why Peru is a country vulnerable to natural disasters: the plates of Nazca and South America, the Mountain range of the Andes and the Circle of Fire of the Pacific.
Programa de Emergencia (Emergency Program).
We help in cases of Emergencies declared by the Peruvian State as earthquakes, rains, landslides, among others.
We donate first aid kits, food kits, personal hygiene kits and technological people search equipment.
Both the kits and the technological equipment are stored and ready for an eventual delivery.
Both are intended for Armed Forces, Firefighters and other National Rescue teams when required.
Natural disaster caused by the rains in Peru 2017.
The intense rains that occur in several regions of the country have caused the fall of huaicos and landslides, as well as the increase of the flow of the rivers that cross by the mountain range and the forest.
The consequences are proving catastrophic to the point that several provinces have been declared in emergency in different regions of the country. Several dead, hundreds of victims and affected are the balance that the inclemency of nature and lack of prevention are charging.
On the other hand, the situation has led the Peruvian Ministry of Health (Minsa) to declare the state medical establishments throughout the country in a "yellow alert" in order to care for people affected by the rains and floods that have been unleashed in the last days.
